Is it legal to hire an escort?

I know its illegal for prostitution (in most states), but is it legal to hire an escort (for paid dating and all that)?

Update:

I'm not asking for anyone's opinion on escorts, I'm just asking if its legal or not

    weird, I was honestly just looking into escorts (thought I'd try something new) and yes it is perfectly legal to hire an escort. It is best to go through an legit agency, legit agencies are kind of hard to find some be sure to do your research. Recently they have been raiding a few escort services because a lot of the women/men were sleeping w/ their customers for an extra fee which is prostitution.http://www.buzzle.com/editorials/10-18-2005-79210....

    Escorts are legal. Their official service is to follow you around so you can flaunt them off and have a companion.

    Having sex with an escort is legal. There are, however, many strings attached.

    The first is that you cannot ask for an exchange of sex for money. In most cases you aren't even allowed to specify what you want to do. Most escorts already have a package deal that they come with and there are only specific acts that they will perform. If at any time a sexual favor is discussed, then it's considered solicitation and she's now (il)legally acting as a prostitute.

    Of course, this is all legalese. There are special codes and such that escorts use so that they can, basically, be prostitutes. It's only legal because, as far as business and vice law are concerned, there isn't any solicitation going on. If you have sex with an escort then it's no different than if you picked up a girl at a club, took her for coffee afterward, and had sex.

    No. Girls who are 16 should be going out with young men their own age. Not "fatherly" types that pay for it. Children with work permits usually have structured hours they are allowed to be at work and surely the "escort service" would not consider home by 10 p.m. working hours. Furthermore - what escort service is this that doesn't provide the side perks for a little extra cash. It is just a round about way of prostituting yet another young girl. A man who pays for the company of a young girl is not paying for her intellectual conversation.

    Technically yes, because there is no law against paying someone to attend a function, gathering, or to go out on a date with you (which is the loophole in the legal system that escorting services exploit). It only becomes illegal once the act of sexual favors or intercourse has taken place in exchange for money or special privileges (example, senators or governors in government and big time CEO's of oil companies receiving and giving favors in exchange for sex).

    There's nothing illegal about the escort his/her self "dating" a client. The money and the sex involved is what makes it illegal (what takes place in private locations and behind closed doors).

    yes it is! just ignore everyone's opinions, they just post to get their 2 points worth. it really depends on the state that you live in but you could check out your local classified ads or you could even post an ad in the newspaper if you're looking for someone specific or for a specific event. you could also hire a friend you trust! that's always a good idea. gets past the awkwardness and such and most people can always use some extra money! have fun!

    I believe so. People hire real escorts all the time. It's the sex they don't want you paying for. Isn't paying for a date and then having sex the same thing? Silly laws.

    • Escorts aren't supposed to sleep with the client, alot of companies actually have a disclaimer that the Escort is allowed to immediately leave without refund if sexual services are asked of them

    Escorts are undercover prostitutes, with the coverup name escort, if a guy calls for an escort he is expecting SEX. but yes its legal to call one because of the fact that they cover it up that they are really having sex.

    In some states; though most states assume you are just doing it for the sex, and therefore consider it solicitation of prostitution.

    But there are some states where prostitution is legal, so hiring an escort is as well.

    Look, if all you are looking for is just someone to take up space so you don't look like you're alone (and not for sex), then that is what your cousins are for.
